Why do patients choose us?
Put simply, because we strive to get you well, quickly and cost effectively. Integrative and functional health has become overly costly and often involves unnecessary testing and treatment, thus wasting a significant amount of a patient’s time and money. Additionally, some of the most popular tests and treatments used in this field are based on dogma, and not on sound science. This is why we’re committed to conducting research at the clinic in addition to treating patients.
Dr. Ruscio, DC and our clinical team do things differently. They have found that lab & supplement companies have influenced practice in the field, similar to how pharma has influenced conventional healthcare. In the below video series Dr. Ruscio, DC shares these insights so that you know what you should do, and what to avoid, in working to improve your health.
